A flood and drain watering method for watering potted plants includes introducing water into a bottom space of a flower pot through a tube extending upwardly from the bottom space and out of the open top of the flower pot until a top portion of soil in the flower pot is flooded with water, and then removing all or part of the brown water which is not absorbed by the soil in the flower pot and is collected in the bottom space. With such a flood and drain watering method, the soil in the flower pot is completely saturated with water but there is no excess brown water remaining in the soil to damage the plant roots. This watering method provides an optimum and non-spill watering of potted plants and is conveniently applicable to most flower pots currently available in the market when a converter kit is provided.
